CFP: EXTENSION: IEEE Transactions on Robotics- Special Issue on Visual SLAM

Having received requests for a deadline extension for the Special Issue 
on Visual SLAM of IEEE Transactions on Robotics, the guest editors and 
editorial board have decided to extend the submission deadline by two 
weeks, to Saturday, December 15, 2007.

Regular and short papers for this Special Issue should be submitted in 
the usual way to T-RO; see details at:

In the submission  email, please specify that the paper is intended for 
the Special Issue on Visual SLAM.

Special Issue on Visual SLAM

In recent years there have been spectacular advances in the solution of 
the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem for indoor 
environments of considerable size, and  to some extent, also for outdoor
environments. Many SLAM systems have been demonstrated to build large 2D 
models of the environment using laser scanners. A current trend in SLAM 
is to use standard, low-cost,  compact and information-rich cameras to
sense the environment rather than more specialized sensors. The focus of 
this Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) is to 
publish outstanding results in the  rapidly progressing subject of 
visual SLAM: visual-only systems as well as systems that accommodate 
available knowledge about the sensor motion provided by other sensors, 
including inertial, accelerometers, gyroscopes and so on. One natural 
major thrust of work in vision-based SLAM is to emulate (and ultimately 
surpass) the results in large-scale mapping achieved using laser 
range-finder sensors, aiming to build vision-only SLAM  systems with the 
potential of guiding autonomous robots in their exploration and 
operation in large and complex environments.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Visual odometry
- Dense scene representation
- Visual loop closing techniques
- Visual sub-mapping
- Bearing only/monocular SLAM
- Multi-camera configurations for SLAM
- Mapping with omni-directional cameras
- High frame-rate motion estimation
- Application to commodity platforms
- High-end applications in field robotics, humanoids, automotive

Techniques that contribute to close the gap between traditional SLAM 
techniques and computer vision techniques will be of special interest.

Important dates:
August 1, 2007: Call for Papers
November 30, 2007: Deadline for Paper Submission
March 15, 2008: Completion of First Review
June 30, 2008: Completion of Final Review
October 2008 (tentative): Publication

The Guest Editors of the Special Issue are:

Prof. Jose' Neira, Dept. de Informatica e Ingenieria de Sistemas, 
Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain
Dr. Andrew Davison, Dept. of Computing, Imperial College, London, UK
Prof. John J. Leonard, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, MIT, Cambridge, 

Submission and Review of Papers:

Submission procedures can be obtained from the T-RO web site T-RO
considers also multimedia material accompanying submissions. Papers 
submitted to the Special Issue will
undergo the usual reviewing process of T-RO.
